Rhydypennau Library Portrait is a voluntary project that began in June and is ongoing and growing. I have been offering to draw a pencil portrait of the visitors to the library and they have been sketched between 5 minutes and up to an hour or so, depending on how much time the sitter has to give. Volunteers have been aged between 0 and 90, many taking part in some of the brilliant groups and events offered at the library. The sitter can take away a photocopy of their portrait, while the original drawings have been collected together to create one big portrait, displayed in the order that they have been drawn. This I hope celebrates and reflects the library’s vibrant community spirit as well as the daily comings and goings, from the very regular regulars, to those who might pass through just once.
